NABJ Elections 2011
SPENDING DISCLOSURE REPORTS - Deadline 5/3/2011
Candidates for NABJ office must report all of the money spent on one's campaign. This form must be used to list campaign-related expenses and donations. In addition to the money actually spent, each candidate also must list realistic estimates for the value of in-kind services and gifts.
You are required to mail these reports and financial statements three times in 2011 – May 3, July 5 and August 3. All documents must be postmarked by those dates or be considered late. The only exception will be the last submission, which is due two days before the election and can be delivered in person to NABJ Director Maurice Foster by noon at the national convention. All disclosure reports will be collected by the national office and forwarded to the Elections Committee.
The first form should cover any campaign expenditures since certification of your candidacy through May 3, 2011. Subsequent forms should cover expenditures since the previous filing. The reports should include a summary of the campaign activities engaged in during the reporting period, an accounting of money raised and acquired during the period, and a list of all expenses related to campaign activities.
The following candidates failed to submit their Spending Disclosure Reports by the May 3 deadline:
Vice President Candidate - Errin Haines
